Top Ten Tuesday- New To Me Authors in 2012

Top Ten Tuesday is a really cool original feature/weekly meme created over at The Broke and The Bookish. Each week they post a new Top Ten List that bloggers join in on answering... and today (December 11th) I'm one of them :)


This week the topic is:


Top Ten Favorite New-To-Me Authors

I Read In 2012


1.  Megan McCafferty- I can't believe it took me this long to discover such an AMAZING series!

2.  Katie McGarry- True she's new to everyone, but OMG I love her!


3. Abbi Glines- I loved The Vincent Boys, especially Beau... so happy I picked it up and can't wait to read more books by her!
 


3.  Stephanie Perkins- Anna and the French Kiss and Lola and the Boy Next Door were easily two of my favorite books from this past year.... if you haven't read Anna yet, get on that!

















4.  Michele Jaffe- I loved Rosebush and will definitely be reading more by this woman who also happens to have an awesome first name :)


5.  Meredith Zeitlin- Freshman Year and Other Unnatural Disasters, enough said.

6.  Laura Buzo- Reminded me how much I love Aussie authors
7.  Stacey Kade- The Ghost and The Goth series was so darn cute!!  I hope she writes more books like those!

8.  C.K. Kelly Martin- I Know It's Over was such an amazing contemporary book that she instantly became one of my fav's.  Now she's going through a dystopian phase, so we'll see if I continue to read her or not :(

9.  Tracy Bilen- What She Left Behind was gripping.  I will definitely be on the lookout for more books by her.


10.  Jenny Han/ Siobhan Vivian- I wasn't obsessed with The List, but Burn for Burn was addicting!  I know Jenny Han has written some cool books by herself too, I just haven't gotten to them... yet.


What new-to-you authors were your favs this year?

  3. I really thought I went through all the books I read this year, but I keep coming across authors that should be on my list! I loved Michele Jaffe's book! Can't wait to read more by her! And I should definitely start reading a book by Stephanie Perkins. I've heard amazing things about her books, but I still haven't read them (I know, shame on me!)

  5. There are so many new books I need to add to my list, I've heard great things about C.K. Kelly Martin so I've been wanting to read her books. I love Stephanie Perkins, I'm waiting for Lola and the Boy Next Door to be released in paperback, I'm really excited to read it.

  6. Stephanie Perkins and Katie McGarry made my list too. I really want to read Love and Other Perishable Items soon, because I've seen nothing but brilliant reviews for it. Great list!

  9. I have read Anna and the French Kiss but not the Boy Next Door. I do need to get on that. Others on your list look very intriguing and will have to put them on my GR list.

  10. I've been eyeing Burn for Burn for few weeks now. I read Siobhan Vivian's The List earlier this year and didn't love it -- but I also give second chances, and was interested in her co-authoring of this book. I'll give it another look!

    1. I didn't love The List either, but Burn for Burn was so much better!

  11. I also read Stephanie Perkins this year, but I wouldn't count her as a favorite author (yet?) All the other names are familiar, but I haven't read any of their books :p Isn't it great to meet new favorite authors :D

    Thanks for stopping by!
